Click here for information about the text and homework problems & solutions. This is a Registered Users Only area so you must be logged into the forums to access this content.

Instrumentation and Process Control by Terry Bartelt, Delmar-Cengage Learning, 2007. ISBN: 978-1-4180-4171-7 ( Link. (NOTE: We DO NOT use the lab manual for this text.)

Many of the topics presented in this text are exemplified on the site. You might find it convenient to Register on this site, but registration is not required. You will be required to view these presentations & other supplied web-assisted materials outside of class lecture time.

Lab Materials:

Plus the Process Control Text from Parallax attached below.

Parallax BasicStamp/BoeBot Board (see below) & batteries or power adapter.
Parallax Process Control Text (see below) & Parts kit (optional)
USB FlashDrive
A notebook computer is recommended, but not required.

The lab portion of the course will consist of several handouts for the analog control topics and then the digital control experiments will be taken from the exercises in the Parallax Process Control Text available for download here:

The Parallax Process Control Kit is no longer available due to two components which were not RoHS Compliant. We have sufficient quantities of the components, but care must be taken to keep the kits in good order. Please report any shortages or failed components you may find during the semester.

You will need your BoeBot Microcontroller board from your EET-101 (Previously ELEC-140) class for many of the lab exercises. If you do not have your BoeBot or if it (the brain) is non-functional, one of the least expensive alternatives is the Basic Stamp Activity Kit from for $79.99. The BoeBot should be available in the STCC bookstore for those who must purchase through that venue. There are limited supplies of Parallax "Homework Boards" which can be loaned out if necessary. They are not quite as flexible as the BoE's, but will mostly do the same job.
